Thanks!!

 

I don't think we're going to use the DJ, but we're not having that many people, only about 20, so it seemed like an extra unnecessary expense for so little people.  I really want to hire an outside photography, however, my fiance is in a little bit of sticker shock with how much a photographer costs, soooo...I need to do a little more convincing on that :S

 

Also, we're only going with the eternity package because there was not as much that we wouldn't use and I had heard of some brides having bad luck swapping stuff and ended up with a lot of things they didn't need or want.  We might change this as the planning gets closer, but I haven't actually even spoken with Pilar yet!

 

How about you?

Right now we are still trying to figure out alot of the details, including DJ and photography. I know for sure I am not going to use the resort photographer - all of the work i have seen (in my opinion) i could probably take better pictures myself. When its all said and done, that is all you have to look back on and I want to look back at some amazingly beautiful pictures - try that one with the hubs ;) 

We are going with the Divine package at this point, but like you said, there are things that I know I am not going to use in the package, like the photographer. No luck so far trying to swap anything, but I did pull all the items i DO want from the package and did get a quote and the quote was actually almost double the $2999 package price. So even if we won't use certain things, its still cheaper to go with the package! We will have about 50 people coming. We are also 25 year olds who like to dance so a DJ is a MUST have for us!

Happy Planning!

I think we're just going to ge the sound system and play an Ipod. There might be some dancing, but not 1000 worth! haha...

 

We're having a reception back home, so maybe we'll have more party there!

Does anyone know which locations for ceremony and/or reception are handicap accessible? I have not been able to get this answer from anyone at the resort after sending emails a couple times over the last 3 weeks.....The handicap accessibility is our only concern
HI there, Congtatulations and I hope you have a wonderful day. I got married 5 weeks ago and it was beautiful. Please do not worry about anything the wc are amazing, they know what they are doing. In regards ro you question the only place I think you would have trouble is if your guest wa in a wheel chair and you were going on the beach. Everywhere else has a pathway as well as stair access. Hope all goes well and if you need anymore help please so ask. Natasha

HOT!! It was HOT! Everyone was constantly hot but it's Mexico so we all expected that. Wouldn't stop me going back in June again, but expect it to be hot.
My wedding is June 12, 2015. I liked the terrace but am worried about the heat in June. However, I hate the traditional "hall" feeling. Was the bamboo room a good choice looking back on it? Or do you think the terrace would have been good? Thanks

Bamboo Room is the best option in my opinion. That's the only thing I would have changed if I could do it over again. Your ceremony & cocktail hour will prob be outdoors. It's a nice break for you and your guest to have an A/C reception indoors, especially in a June. When I saw the Bamboo Room I thought it was great.

I'm fairly laid-back and I have a flexible view of my wedding day so I don't have any really specific things to worry about, however, did anyone have any surprises once they got down there or in the planning process?

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
